Join us on January 13 for an evening of reflection about the Jewish approach to the Divine. This will feature Sarah Hurwitz, former head speechwriter for Michelle Obama and author of Here All Along, in dialogue with R. Elie Kaunfer, asking: What do we mean when we say the word “God”? What does Jewish spirituality look like? How can we pray if we don’t buy the language about God in our prayer books?
Dr. Scharfman z”l was committed to learning and Torah and we are honored to be able to hold this lecture in his memory. Thank you to the Scharfman Family for their support in making this lecture possible.

Lecture 7:00 to 8:30 pm, book signing 8:30 to 9:00 pm.
